What an astonishingly compelling video. I wasn't convinced by the still shot at the very beginning, but after almost four minutes of watching it to the sound of Wheezy Narrator Guy's voice, I'm convinced. And he's even got a quote in the article! A quote! From one of the astronauts! One of them! Hell, if one of the astronauts said that, it has to be real.

I find the concept of aliens on the moon disturbing. But I find it more disturbing that Fark has a logo for this site.
 
2012-08-30 08:02:39 AM  
That site gave my browser UFOs.

it would certainly be a reasonable explanation why Armstrong left the space program.

Yes, certainly, the most reasonable explanation I have heard so far.

Armstrong hasn't denied this since he died either.

I heard it was because of the allegations of steroid use.

TFA: "These babies are huge, sir. Enormous! Oh, God, you wouldn't believe it! I'm telling you there are other space craft out there. Lined up on the far side of the crater edge. They're on the Moon watching us!"

Those were whaling ships, not space craft.

I heard it was because of his serious gambling debts so NASA sent him down to minor league model rocketry for a few seasons, and then brought him back later. It's what got his Dad killed.

Pshaw. Everyone knows there was a suburban enclave on the far side of the crater they landed in. Of course he saw some streetlights from there.
 
2012-08-30 10:20:03 AM  
This is solid proff that Armstrong was NOT the first man on the moon. The streetlight installation crew was there first!

Wait, there were UFO sightings at the sound stage they faked the moon landings on?

Quick, somebody make a documentary about this with spooky electronic music!

Some guy did a youtube... it must be true.

I always thought that Buzz and Neil together could have made a fortune doing endorsements. Commercial would be something about a product being first to market, and it would start with Buzz and Neil both trying to walk into a store at the same time, and both not being able to do that, Buzz would look really annoyed and biatch about Neil always being first. I don't know, seems like that would have been a great commercial.

It was Area 51-Up. He couldn't talk about it.

Why would aliens care if a bunch of hillbillies went to their own moon?
 
2012-08-30 10:27:57 AM  
I was skeptical at first, but the guy's voice gets kinda scary about 8 seconds into the clip. So I'm pretty sure this is credible.
 
2012-08-30 10:28:00 AM  
The reason all this stuff is so easily washed away is because people so quickly dismiss it. Cognitive dissonance must be great. I'm not even suggesting this is real. It could be real as the air we breath and people would still convince themselves it's fake. To suggest it's not possible is just ignorance. And I'm not even a UFO/conspiracy kinda guy.
 
2012-08-30 10:28:24 AM  
I don't believe that there were alien ships on the moon "watching their every move". I don't think there was a government coverup. I don't think Armstrong secluded himself to aid NASA in the conspiracy. I don't believe any of that alien shiat.

But damn, I really hope I'm proven wrong some day.
 
2012-08-30 10:28:49 AM  
So the aliens were watching them on a soundstage?!?!?

Which is it conspiracy people? Did the aliens watch them on the moon or did they not go to the moon? Can't have it both ways.

God help us the day someone actually does get photographic evidence of aliens. Because no will ever believe it.
 
2012-08-30 10:32:43 AM  
And almost 50 years later, the quality of UFO pictures has not improved one bit.

Whatever UFOs are or are not, it's fairly certain that the government throws a lot of disinformation into the mix.

Good luck with the election in November guys... you're going to need it because your citizens are absolutely fekking morans...

I heard it was because he tried to take a piss on the Moon ala Patton at the Rhine. He unzipped his spacesuit, his penis shot off into orbit, and he was never the same man again. There are stories of him and his wife standing outside at night, wistfully staring at the Moon.

That would have been a great commercial...nice to know both of them had the class not to do anything like that. Another good commercial would have been to have him and Shatner do a spot. Have Bill go into his shtick and then have Neil walk over and shake his head or something.

Funny. People mock people for believing in UFO's.

And people mock people for believing in God.

I'm betting the joke is on all of them.

I think people can dismiss this one easily because the photo that "Neil Armstrong took" features some nice steep hills behind the lunar lander. No cognitive dissonance required.

People aren't mocked for believing in UFOs. People are mocked because they believe that unknown flashing light in the sky must be a flying saucer piloted by trans-dimensional grey beings from the planet Alpha Centauri because "what else could it possibly be?"

People aren't mocked for believing in god, they are mocked for believing the burn in their toast that looks like the Virgin Mary are a sign from god
